weekend thrifting and the cottage on rosewood...

Happy Tuesday ~ Nifty Thrifty Tuesday that is and it is time to celebrate over at Coastal Charm where Linda is playing hostess today! Here is what I picked up while thrifting over the weekend...
I especially love the little bud vase ~ with some sweet little hand painted roses... I also picked up these wonderful bird prints... But here are my best finds ~ two mirrors for $1 each! You know they will each get a dreamy coat of white and I will probably add a rose applique on the cabinet door mirror... I have been admiring these two adorable little lampshades at the shop for months and I finally brought them home... Do you remember when I posted my parents wedding photos on VBF? Well I think I spy those little shades behind my Grandfather... I just think it was meant to be!! Thank you Linda for hosting today ~ make sure you all take some time and visit some other thrifty finds!
Do you remember my lucky streak a few weeks back when I won another giveaway? Well I received my Pottery Barn Gift Certificate in the mail over the weekend that I won from Ginger over at Cottage on Rosewood! Thanks Ginger!! I am sure you have all visited her lovely blog and seen her beautiful photos...

Ginger has a space at a local shop that I would just love to be able to visit! She is so talented and creative ~ take a look at my favorite project of hers here. Her photos are so great and I love to visit her blog ~ I am always inspired! She recently blogged about one of her design crushes ~ coincidentally named Ginger! I myself have a design crush on the Ginger from Cottage on Rosewood!

Love those lampshades...and they certainly do look like the ones in the photo! And I can imagine those mirrors painted up - you go girl!

Sandi said...

Fun finds Sandi! I must knew you would paint the mirrors white (as would I). Those lampshades are beautiful and yes I think it was meant to be!! I am off today to take son and his family to the Spangler Candy company in a local town to take a tour and see how suckers are made. We get to ride the dumm dumm trolly!! lol

It looks like you had a successful weekend of thrifting! The mirrors for $1.00 each were such a great buy. And the lampshades are lovely. They were meant to be yours (and what a great wedding photo)!
Have a wonderful week.
